really liked it
bookshelves: historical-fiction, novel
Read in February, 2012

Based on the true story of over 200 Holocaust survivors imprisoned for traveling to Palestine after the war without legal papers. Gives an amazing glimpse into what postwar life was like for Jewish immigrants. Favorite lines:
1. "Making plans is a game. Life chooses for you" (92).
2. "Weeping is terrible for the complexion, but it is very good for the heart" (93).
3. "I believe it is better to let our mistakes rest in peace. How can we live if the past is hung around our necks" (161)?
